Day 1 – Bristol – Finally!
After (wow I have no idea how many) hours of travel, we have arrived in Bristol.
Our flight from Toronto to London was delayed a bit due to new landing gear tires needing to be put on the plane. Favorable winds however still got us to London at close to our expected landing time. Airport traffic meant we did a few circles but finally touched down at 10:30 local time.
We chose to take a coach to Bristol (departing at 12:15) in lieu of the train, which saved us quite a few pounds. A two hour ride through mostly English country side and we made it to our first town.
The GPS gave us some issues but we finally got it to sync and trekked about 20 blocks or so through an enormous shopping district to find our hotel. We checked in around 14:45 local time.
So, all said, since that’d be 06:45 back home, total travel time from Seattle to Bristol was right at 19 hours.
Yeah, so where’s the pub?
